    OK, I'm probably guilty of 5 and 7... definately 1, however my kids are younger, I have way too many hobbies, and I ride all year. Guess that's a wash... LOL

    ok. If being a member is required to attend it is understandable why it isn’t advertised outside the club.

    it seems to me that in order to keep this club alive though, local chapters would be encouraged to recruit from the limited number of Vic owners hanging onto their bikes. I’m no genius but the numbers of us are only dwindling over time So they are a dying club. Without active recruitment they are going to be gone sooner.

    just a thought.

    1st, and foremost...you don't need to be a member of the VMC to attend this or any rally. You will however pay an additional fee for not being a member to attend. 2nd, there more than likely is a form of recruitment at the event, as it is encouraged to join the VMC and save any additional fees at registration for said event. I am also pretty sure there has been plenty of gab about this event on various Facebook pages. I don't Facebook, so not positive about this.
    I agree that the VMC must do better to make ALL Victory owners aware that there is a club that still has a presence Worldwide.

    Never once cared about a club. Got a circle of biker friends I'll hang out with but we live in different states. We all met because of another forum I'm on but that's as close to club as we get most not on there anymore.

    I’m not looking for anything that resembles a 1% er club or A bunch of rules or meetings, just a larger group of Victory riders.
    If the VMC resembled that it may be for me but if it doesn’t then so be it. I suppose I’d have to go to a meeting cold turkey to see.

    I’m with U sicvic, I’m far from a 1%er, paying stupid high membership fees & having to do tons of meetings. But I’m a bike/ car guy through n through & just luv checking out others rides while eating some good food & enjoy Having conversations with others like us so I hope can go to a Vic rally someday. Be cool to C & talk face 2 face with other Vic people even if is 6ft apart hahaha

    For those who are not sure about the VMC, it is in NO WAY a 1% club. Started in the very early days of Victory, Just a group of Victory Enthusiasts who needed ways of communication for an up and coming motorcycle brand. Where to find this or you should try that kinda stuff. Quickly evolved into a coast to coast family friendly group with meet ups or ride to theres. Early rallies included a "meet in the middle" type gathering in the middle of the US. There were and still are regional rallies that bring together many Victory riders for rides, food, & conversation. These rallies are where you will meet fellow Victory riders and believe it or not make friends that will last a life time.
    Check out the VMC at www.thevmc.com 1st year dues for a full membership are $20 and yearly renewal is $13. Like anything in life, you get what you put in.

    Yep, if you want to attend chapter meets great, if not great. That's up to you I joined because I like riding with other Vic guys once in a while but am an unsociable usually and would rather take long trips without being with a group.

    Yeah, group rides where the lead guy wants to drone down the highway like it’s his first time out of the retirement home is not for me.
    Sometimes I gotta “just go” and I don’t need some guy with a title over his name telling me to get back in line.

    I stand corrected , you are right , you don't have to be member to attend just pay an extra fee. Thanks for the correction.
